Art Nouveau – Seeing Patterns


Drawing inspiration from organic free-forms found in the scapes of nature, this frame caught my attention. It reflects a strong contrast against rectilinear shapes derived from man-made objects in the vicinity. The elegant curves of the vines form an organic composition, similar to the fluidity of human motion – unlike the grayscale landscape in which this object resides. Art Nouveau primarily aims to deviate away from machine-like compositions to focus more on the forms demonstrated in flora & fauna.

Some other interesting compositions that caught my eyes along the sidewalks of NTU – Something I failed to notice amidst my busy schedule.
